DICE send word that February 1st will mark the kick off of “Community Appreciation Month”, a series of events designed to show how much DICE values the community that has stuck with it even through what it acknowledges as some incredibly frustrating bugs.
For each day that you log into the game in February, you’ll receive a Bronze or Silver Battlepack (Bronze for weekdays, Silver for weekends), which contains bonuses like extra camouflage or XP boosts. “Normally, it would take approximately 30 hours gameplay to earn that many packs,” says DICE.
There’s also two new shortcut bundles which will be made available for free during February. These will unlock all grenades and handguns for the base game of BF4, or for Premium players, there will be two additional weapon shortcut bundles which unlock DMRs and shotguns.
A double-XP weekend is also planned for some time during February, along with Community Missions where you’ll work together to unlock Gold Battlepacks. DICE will also be holding frequent developer talks, with details and channels to be announced later.
